Read More

Frank has been in the building and development industry since 1996, originally starting his career at Homestart, a J-Corp company that is a proud subsidiary of the Buckeridge Group of Companies (BGC). There, Frank was a very successful new home consultant helping first homebuyers out of the rental trap.

Diversifying his property experience by spending a few years at a smaller building company, Frank grew a passion for developing properties and soon changed his focus to unit developments. His success in this field grew quickly and Frank soon found that the smaller builder couldn’t satisfactorily handle the volume of work that he was generating.Frank returned to J-Corp under the then Unitz by Impressions division to focus primarily on property development. Being a part of the biggest project building company in Australia allowed Frank to further expand the scale and volume of the projects being built.

Over the last 15 years Frank has worked closely with mum and dad investors as well seasoned property developers, assisting with projects from small lot developments to up to 70 plus strata developments. Frank’s unique, honest and highly personalised service has remained constant through the years and is an integral part of the specialised systems that exists at Developments by Impressions. The success of Developments by Impressions is largely attributed to the word-of-mouth referral business generated by Frank’s clients, which is a testament to his work ethic and service to our clientele.

Meghann has been with Impressions for over 8 years. Starting as a drafts-person, she moved up to design after 3 years and still enjoys all the fun and fuss of being a senior designer. Throughout her time in architectural design, Meghann has worked on a range of housing types including single houses, grouped dwellings, multiple dwellings and two-storey single and grouped subdivision.

Meghann particularly enjoys working on grouped dwellings because although they are less complex, they are more challenging. Some of her recent work includes:

  • 7-unit development in Southern River: Meghann was involved in this project since the very beginning, from subdivision and concept plans through to the planning stage.
  • 3-unit development in Beckenham: One of Meghann’s favourites with a very successful outcome in maximising the potential of the block.

"Design takes time, effort and even sleepless nights, but it's all worth it for Meghann when she sees each and every project successfully finished: “It’s like a solved puzzle that’s come to life."
